Lend a hand at tourney

The Commercial-News

---- — In a little more than a week, hundreds of people from community colleges across the country will visit Danville to participate in this year’s National Junior College Athletic Association Men’s Division II Basketball Tournament. Tournament organizers need lots of help — your help — to be sure the tournament runs smoothly.

When the 16 teams begin playing March 18 at Danville Area Community College, local volunteers will help feed the crowds, record the games, take tickets, sell souvenirs and provide information to visitors.

The volunteers receive free admission to the games for themselves and their families, as well as the appreciation of the organizers and the community.

For information of how to volunteer, contact the Danville Area Convention and Visitors Bureau at 442-2096 or send an email to

Step up and be a part of a national collegiate tournament.
